Riverman USEF Leading Eventing Sire
With each step in their careers, the Riverman offspring continue to impress us with the versatile athleticism that has allowed them to succeed at the highest levels of most every discipline. Over the years we’ve seen Riverman ranked near the top the USEF Leading Sire rankings in multiple disciplines and in 2015 his offspring once again earned him the honor of USEF Leading Eventing Sire. The results of a few offspring were particular highlights. Owned by Judith McSwain and bred by Charlotte Wrather, Fleecework’s Royal (ds. Corofino) handily won the Preliminary Championship at the USEA American Eventing Championships. Fleecework’s Royal is a previous winner of the 5-Year Old Young Event Horse West Coast Championships. Rachel Wilk’s River King (ds. Speed Play xx) competed at the Intermediate and Advanced Levels, picking up 5 top ten finishes. River King was bred by Cheryl Byrd. Kaitlin Whitefield’s Rivoletto (ds. Flying Nashua xx) was a consistent mount at the Preliminary level, taking home the Preliminary Level win at The Event at Rebecca Farms. Hilltop Farm would like to thank all of the breeders who have confidently chosen Riverman for their breeding plans over the years. Your breeding and competition efforts are truly appreciated and this recognition for Riverman could not have been possible without your efforts!
Hilltop Farm's Christopher Hickey and Cabana Boy (Contucci-Bordeaux) attended the 2010 Collecting Gaits Farm/USEF Dressage Festival of Champions on August 6-8 at the historic USET headquarters in Gladstone, NJ. At only 8 years old, this was already Cabana Boy's 2nd trip to the Championships. It was especially rewarding to have Hilltop's owner Jane MacElree and her daughters Ann and Leslie on hand to enjoy the show.
What a way to end the year! The 2012 North American Stallion Test just finished this weekend and we couldn't be more pleased with the results for Qredit when he finished as the Dressage Champion & Overall Champion at the the 2012 70-Day North American Stallion Test!

Wisconsin breeders work on one foal at a time. Shannon (a competitive dressage rider) and Doug Langer, DVD, (a partner of the Wisconsin Equine Clinic and Hospital) have bred Hanoverians for 10 years at their Maple Run Farm in Helenville, Wisconsin. They arrived on the international stage when their homebred Cabana Boy represented the United States at the 2007 World Young Horse Championships.
The manicured grounds of the Lamplight Equestrian Center were superb as was the quality of the equine competitors at the 2009 Markel/United States Equestrian Federation (USEF) National Young Horse Dressage Championships and the 2009 USEF National Developing Horse Dressage Championship, sponsored by the Dutta Corporation and Performance Sales International.
